Reliable Network Inventory

Foundation for successful implementation of operational processes in the telecommunication company

The effective roll-out of telecommunication services requires instant and reliable information about existing or planned network provided by Network Inventory System. Recurring delays or inaccuracies during service fulfillment processes may cause significant losses to the operator’s corporate image and budget.

  • Does your company lack the information to make informed decisions about where the new network capacity is required or how best to deploy that capacity?

  • Are you looking for improvements in the service feasibility check process?

  • Are you looking for a more effective way to plan and design network & services?

  • Do you struggle with capturing as-built network data into Network Inventory?

  • Does your service provisioning process require instant and reliable support from Network Inventory?

  • At any time, do you know what would be the business impact of network resource outage?
